There has never been a better time to use video online to grow your business. But few know where to start. In this 2-part workshop series you’ll learn how to shoot and edit quality videos, so you can attract the right audience for your business.

After these hands-on workshops, you’ll walk away with a new toolbox of tips, tricks and time savers that will launch you towards producing engaging videos online.

 

Part 1: Video Production for Beginners

 

This class will get you started with creating your own web videos. As the cost of equipment has dropped dramatically in recent years, it has become easier than ever to produce video content with minimal investment.  We'll show you how!  You don't need lots of money to compete – what you need is the education and the technique to efficiently produce quality content. 

 

Note: You don’t need prior video production experience, but we recommend that you either own or plan on purchasing a video camera (a handycam or DSLR). 

 

We will cover:

 

  • Basic shooting techniques
  • Which camera to choose for your videos
  • Critical camera settings
  • Introduction into lighting for an interview scene or presenter
  • How to get the best audio quality for your videos

 

Included in the workshop:

 

  • High quality instruction by video professionals
  • Small class size
  • Delicious catered lunch
  • Complimentary coffee and tea
  • Goodie bag with fun Camp Tech swag
  • A take-home checklist of how to plan an effective video shoot
  • Official recognition for your participation (that you can share on LinkedIn and your resume)

 

 

 

Part 2. Video Editing for Beginners with Premiere Pro

 

Create compelling video by learning to capture, edit and output with Adobe Premiere. You’ll become familiar with the Premiere interface as you learn how to sort, organize and adjust clips on a timeline and apply video transitions.  You’ll discover how to add polish to your video by adding music and titles.  And of course we’ll show you how to output the final video for the web.

 

Note: Laptop computers with Adobe Premiere Pro installed on them are required for this class. If you don’t have Premiere Pro, you can download the free 30-day trial from Adobe’s website before the class.

 

We will cover: 

 

  • How to download video footage from your camera and import photos, graphics, music and more
  • How to keep your files organized
  • The most used tools and how they work
  • The basic editing concepts and strategies of storytelling

  • How to level audio and music
  • How to add titles to your videos
